Foundry Bridge, Norwich

KN1900

 

Cory places him at 7 Prince of Wales Road by 1875, and the business is listed as Taney & Co in directories from 1877 onwards. At one stage, at least, during the late 80s or early 90s, Taney was describing his company on mounts as ‘American Photographers’. Taney & Co was also in business at Foreshore Road, Scarborough, Yorkshire, according to cabinet and carte mounts dating from the (early?) 1890s. The company appears to have been a family business (the 1881 census shows both George B and his son, George E as photographers), and it later diversified briefly to run a cinema in St Andrew’s Street.

Everitt reports that he also ran a studio in Cromer (but that may have come later than the period covered by this directory).

 

TAYLOR & Co

 

82 Regent Road, Yarmouth       

KN1912

 

This may well be a later studio of Bert Taylor, below. (Regent Road studios)

                       

TAYLOR, Bert Armond

 

Bridge Chambers, Southtown Road, Yarmouth

KN1904

 

43 Market Place, Yarmouth

Taylor is described in KN1904 as ‘proprietor of Orient Art Co.’

 

TAYLOR, Harry

 

West End House, Watton

KN1896

 

TAYLOR, William

 

Heathcote refers to a William Taylor at 13 High Street, Lynn, 1854-1855. He advertised frequently in the local press from 1854 to 1857.

 

TEMPLE, James

 

89 Middlegate Street, Yarmouth

THOMAS, W S

KN1883

 

THOMPSON, Mr

 

According to 'The Norfolk Chronicle', 24th March 1866, he had a photographic booth on wheels set up for several weeks in the forecourt of his house in London Road, Lynn. It then caught fire, with the loss of much of his equipment.

 

THOMPSON, Charles James

 

Opie Street, Norwich         

HN1863

 

St Andrew’s Street, Norwich         

WN1864, KN1865, MN1867, HN1868, KN1869, HN1872, HN1877, CLN1877, KN1883, EN1883, WN1883

 

35 St Andrew's, Broad Street, Norwich

KN1888

 

The move from Opie Street to St Andrew's Street is announced in 'The Norfolk Chronicle', 25th July 1863. Sources sometimes expand ‘St Andrew’s Street’ to read ‘St Andrew’s, Broad Street’. On carte mounts dating from, probably, the 1870s, the address appears as ‘Broad Street, St Andrew's (opposite Bridewell Alley)’. He is listed as ‘C J Thompson jun.’ in EN1883. According to Cory, he dropped photography to concentrate on dentistry in the early 1890s.

TILLEY Brothers

 

Known from a cabinet print dating from the early 1900s and bearing the address '92 Regent Road, Great Yarmouth'. They were presumably successors to A E Day (Regent Road studios). Records of the Photographic Convention of the United Kingdom indicate that they were in

Yarmouth by 1897.

 

TOLL, Frederick G


Thoroughfare, Harleston       

KN1908, KN1912, AN1916

 

TREBLE, C F

 

‘C F Treble, 182 King Street, Great Yarmouth’ is printed on a carte apparently dating from the 1890s (possibly late 90s). A connection with the business of Frederick Treble (below) seems likely, though directories record no Treble presence at this Yarmouth address after 1879.

 

TREBLE, Frederick

 

St Andrew's, Broad Street, Norwich         

KN1875, CLN1877, KN1879, EN1883, KN1888, KN1892

182, King Street, Yarmouth       

SYcirca1878, KN1879

 

29a Rampant Horse Street, Norwich

WN1890

 

Treble had previously practised in Hastings, Sussex, from the late 1860s to the early 1870s. The business appears in both Yarmouth listings as ‘F Treble & Co’. (King Street studios)

 

TUBBS, W T

 

Though not found in directories, W T Tubbs of Upwell is known from a carte de visite dating, probably, from the 1860s. He also contributed to the 1856 exhibition of the Norwich Photographic Society.

 

TURNER, Mr

 

'The Norfolk News', 30th September 1854, reported that he had erected a daguerreotype studio near Lynn railway station.

 

URBINSKY, Louis

 

Davey Place, Norwich

WN1890, KN1892

 

2 Davey Place, Norwich

KN1896

 

18 The Walk, Market Place, Norwich

KN1900

 

18 Market Place, Norwich

TC1901

 

A carte mount, apparently from the 1890s, has ‘19 The Walk’. Urbinsky’s mounts proclaimed that he operated ‘By appointment to HRH the Prince of Wales’. 

 

USA Studios

 

Orford Place, Norwich

KN1908

 

The USA Studios had branches in a number of towns up to at least the beginning of the First World War.

 

USHERWOOD, Egmont Augustus

 

136 St Benedict's Street, Norwich

VANDALEUR, G A

 

Royal Place, Yarmouth

KN1858

 

Market Place (next the Angel Hotel) & 3 Marine Terrace, South Beach, Yarmouth

FP1859

 

His advertisement in FP1859 proclaims 'Portraits taken (daily) in the highest style of Art, from one shilling to five pounds' . He offers 'views, stereographs, copies of engravings, works of art, &c; portraits on leather for transmission abroad. Vandaleur's stereographs of Yarmouth only one shilling each!'

 

VANDYKE & Co

 

The Walk, Market Place, Norwich

KN1904, AN1916

 

Market Place, Norwich

KN1908, KN1912

 

18 Market Place, Norwich

JN1911, JN1914, KN1916

 

The three different versions of the address may all refer to the same studio.

 

VAUGHAN, Frederick

 

63 Magdalen Street, Norwich

JN1911, KN1912, JN1914

 

VENTNOR, Mr

 

Mentioned in a Sawyer & Bird advertisement of 1873 as a photographer who specialised in large-scale portraits, and who sometimes worked at their Norwich studio. 

 

VILENKIN, L

 

60 High Street, Lynn    

KN1916

 

This address housed the studio of Thomas Smith & Sons for over twenty years, up to KN1908. The Smith business is then, confusingly, listed at this address once more in AN1916.

 

VILLIERS, George

 

Itinerant daguerreotypist, listed by Heathcote. He was at Mr J Crow’s, St Stephen’s Street, Norwich, 1852-3, and from that Norwich base he visited Cromer. 'The Norfolk News', 17th July 1852, reported that he had begun to use the collodion process in addition to the daguerreotype process. He also appeared at locations in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, as well as further afield. (In later years he was active in Wales and the western counties of England.)
